Painted shells out the door…..

Some custom painted drum shells we sent out this week. We can supply you with any shell available or send in your own, with any color paint, stain, kandy, sparkle flake, fade, color match, etc added to your liking. If you build your own drums instead of a complete drum, or anything in between, we can help you out. Added bearing edges cut, snare beds, drilling for hardware, installed reinforcement rings, parts, wrap, etc.

Here are a few shells shipped out in our super high gloss. And yes we know how to pack em so they get to you scratch free and damage free.

Another custom blended color stain kit…

All of our wood color stains are mixed in house. This gives us ultimate control in exactly which shade of color you would like and to make sure there is nothing “stock” about your drumkit. This color was actually a mix of 3 different stains to achieve our newest color – “Golden Brown”, a rich deep brown with a hint of amber glow. All black nickel hardware pulls the whole kit together. This kit was made for DREW CUEVA of STATIC THOUGHT and was literally finished the night before their US/Canadian tour. Sizes are 18×22″ kick, 9×12″ tom, 16×16″ floor tom, 6×14″ snare. A maple Players Series kit with a 10ply snare installed with 6ply reinforcement rings for extra cut and full tone.

3pc White Satin Stain w/ Black Nickel Hardware

Custom kit made for ZACH PEACH of Sensual Saint and This Is Radiation.  A Players Series Maple kit in White Satin Stain with all black nickel hardware.  We custom fitted this kit with GN Single Point lugs along with pro spurs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, die cast claws, and heavy duty round brackets on the floor tom.  This kit sounds as amazing as it looks!  Just ask Zach!  You will hear this kit on their next album due out soon, and see it on the road on their followup tour.

4pc Black Stain High Gloss BeBop Kit

A new 4pc kit with matching snare for our buddy Nick Fishman who is currently on tour with his new kit throughout the US and then off on his European tour. After hours of consulting with Nick, we determined that our thinner Standard Series Maple of 6ply toms and an 8ply kick with added custom made 3ply maple reinforcement rings would be the best drumkit possible for him and his various music styles. Our thin maple shells offer tons of body and low end but the installed re-rings add just a touch of high end cut. The color is a dark black transparent stain where you can still see the wood grain (just not in the photos of course) with our high gloss topcoat. We left the insie of the kick hoops natural for a nice wood contrast. A very cool sounding and classy looking bop kit. Sizes include 14×18″ kick, 5.5×14″ snare, 8×12″ tom, 14×14″ floor all with chrome hardware and a single tom bass drum mount installed.

Black Nickel Shell w/ Hammered Copper Inlay

A unique metal shell with sexy looks and a great sound. It features a 1.3mm steel shell plated in smooth black nickel and a hammered cooper inlay and two center beads. A similar shell to our brass series but with a touch drier sound and great sensitivity with it’s wide snare beds. Dressed in all chrome hardware. We may have to bring this shell into full production with regular availability.

4pc Black Glass Glitter Kit

One of our Standard Series 100% maple kit that is versatile for any style of music or drummer. All wrapped in black glass glitter that looks killer with the all chromed hardware. Sizes are 8×12″ rack tom, 13×16″ floor tom, 18×22″ kick drum, and a 6.5×14″ matching snare drum. We dressed this kit with 1″ mini tube lugs, DSS suspension mount, heavy duty round brackets, pro spurs, and 2.3mm triple flanged hoops. The snare drum has full length tube lugs x10, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, and a Nickelworks throwoff with German brass snare wires.



5×14″ Smooth Black Nickel Over Brass

We built this snare drum for CHRISTIAN CANALITA, a local teacher and drummer for the country-rock singer JESSICA CAYLYAN. A 5×14″ smooth black nickel over brass shell that creates that warm brass snare sound with that extra bite. The added die cast hoops help focus the extra overtones while adding bolder rimshots and cross-stick sounds. All chrome hardware includes full length solid brass tube lugs x10, a vintage style P-86 throwoff and German brass snare wires. A killer sound drum for any collection, especially to fill that metal snare drum void.

4pc Custom Painted Satin Black

A cool custom painted Players Series kit in all satin gloss piano black with a satin white painted stripe on the bass hoops to replicate an inlay. The satin gloss topcoat is a specialty clear coat that is the same quality of our high gloss lacquer but with a custom flattening agent to keep a low sheen, much like a cool hotrod. Unlike our satin stain series, this is a heavier clear coat that works with any basecoat, from transparent, solids, sparkle flakes, kandy, etc. The satin black looks killer with the all chrome hardware, including 1″ mini tube lugs, 2.3mm triple flanged hoops, heavy duty brackets, pro spurs, and die cast claws. The sizes include 9×13″ rack tom, 14×16″ & 16×18″ floor toms, and a punchy 20×22″ kick drum.
